The 2015 MIECHV Core Competencies define knowledge and skills for home visitors and other staff that work with families of young children.
Developed with input from partner agencies and front-line providers, the core competencies address these Topic Areas which align with the MIECHV Benchmark areas:
- Maternal & Child Health
- Childhood Injuries
- Abuse & Neglect
- School Readiness
- Domestic Violence
- Family Economic Self-Sufficiency
- Coordination of Services.
The 2015 Florida MIECHV Core Competencies also endeavor to connect recommended Knowledge/Skills within each Topic/Sub-topic area to available Learning Opportunities and to methods to help measure Demonstration of the skills by staff of local MIECHV implementation agencies. The core competencies are intended as a framework to stimulate more detailed work at the program and agency level.
The Center for Prevention and Early Intervention Policy at Florida State University, a state MIECHV partner, lead the development of core competencies.
